would you rather book tag.

Hi 🙂

I seen this tag over at Marie’s (drizzle and hurricane books) blog and I thought it looked like a lot of fun! I’m also killing time before the party we are having starts! What better way than a fun book tag? 🙂

>>Would you rather only read trilogies or only read standalones?

+ I think I would probably go with standalones! I love a good trilogy, but I have started so many trilogies and series that I am kind of overwhelmed with it! I know there also so many unfinished ones that I started that I really need to finish! It can get kind of chaotic!

>>Would you rather only read male or female authors?

+ This is kind of hard to answer! I love books by all, but I guess if I really had to choose than I guess I would choose female. There have been amazing books that I read by females that you would probably think a male would have written.

>>Would you rather shop at Barnes and Noble or Amazon?

+ Although Barnes & Noble is more convenient, because you can have the books right away…I would choose Amazon. It’s so much cheaper to order books on Amazon and it always helps that you can get books even cheaper when you get e-books too.

>>Would you rather books were made into TV shows or movies?

+ I was just talking to my boyfriend about this the other day! Well, me talk and he being “tortured” to listen to my book talk, haha. I was telling him how I rather books be made into TV shows, because I feel like you can get more of the book if it was a TV show and it wouldn’t be as rushed and as many things taken out. With a movie, I feel like it’s always rushed and sometimes so many things are different….*cough* Percy Jackson *cough*

>>Would you rather read only 5 pages per day or 5 books per week?

+ Five books per week, DUUUUUHHHH! There are just too many books that need to be read to only read five pages a day! That’s insane! GIVE ME ALL THE BOOKS!

>>Would you rather be a professional author or reviewer?

+ I would rather be a professional reviewer. I suck at writing anything, so I rather just enjoy the books instead of writing them.

>>Would you rather be a librarian or a bookseller?

+ Hmmm…I think I would choose bookseller. I would love to meet people that buy books and collect books. I would be able to share my love for collecting and buying. It would also be fun recommending books that they HAVE to own. High five to all the librarians though. I would probably talk people into buying the books if I was a librarian too. Any job surrounded by books would be amazing to me.

>>Would you rather read only your favorite genre, or every other genre but your favorite?

+ OMG! This is a horrible question! I love so many different genres. I don’t even know what my favorite is anymore!I One of my favorites is dystopia, but I think I will just go with every other genre, because well….maybe I’ll learn to love them even more.

>>Would you rather only read ebooks or physical books?

+ TOUGH question! I love them both, but lately I really love physical books. So I guess I would go with physical books.

I want everyone that is following me to do this tag and then link me to your posts! This is such a fun tag and you should not skip over it! 😛


Other bookish stuff;

I won this ARC in a giveaway on Twitter and I received it yesterday! I am really excited about it and can’t wait to read it! 🙂 *picture is linked to Goodreads*

IMG_7188

I am currently reading Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend and I found this in the book and thought it was hilarious. **by the way, this book is SO good**

IMG_7247

Basically, Sergeant Which is a Doctor Who spinoff in this book. HAHAHAHA. I thought it was pretty hilarious, but I guess that’s because I am a hardcore Doctor Who fan. I’m sure you’ve seen how much I’ve mentioned it and I also own so much Doctor Who stuff, SO MUCH. Here’s my mini Sonic Screwdriver. & remember that time my kitten was the fourth Doctor? 😛

IMG_5387IMG_2638

Anyway! I have tons more pictures to share with you, but I’ll save those for another time or you can check out my instagram (heyyitsashley) and you can see them over there! 🙂

Here are a couple of my recent posts if you missed them and want to check them out!

I am off to go to this party! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! BYE! ❤

The Burrito Bowl Book Tag.

burrito-bowl-book-tag-image-750x450

Hi 🙂 Two posts in one day! Link to earlier post will be at the end of this one. I was tagged by Maren @ The Worn Bookmark to do the Burrito Bowl Book Tag. It sounds like so much fun! You all should go check out Maren’s blog, because she has such a great blog! Her blog is definitely one of my favorites!

Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you to make your own burrito bowl, linking back to their site.
  2. Answer the tag questions.
  3. Tag 5 others to create their own bowl!
  4. Food coma.

Rice: The Foundation – “The book that got you into reading (or book blogging)”The Hunger Games series definitely got me REALLY into reading. Ever since reading that series 3-4 years ago, I have been reading all the time.

2767052

Beans: The Filler – “The book with a whole lot of nothing going on” – I haven’t read too many that completely bored me to dead (the first 250 pages of Throne of Glass), but I will officially go with The Curse Keepers, that book just plain sucked and wasn’t doing it for me.

17894256

Protein: The Building Block – “A book quote to live by” – I definitely have to go with this quote from Jasper Jones – “Life might be easier if you give in a little, but it’s better if you hold onto something so hard you can’t give it up.”I love this quote so much and I love this book so much.

8407173

Fajitas: The Crunch of Texture – “A book with immaculate world-building” – As much as this book bored me in the beginning, it did have really good world-building. Throne of Glass.

16034235

Salsa: The Dance of Flavour – “A book that kept you on your toes” – So far this series has been on point and definitely has been keeping me on my toes! I really can’t wait until the third book! Ahhhhh! Angelfall by Susan Ee.

11500217

Corn: The Explosion of Sweetness – “A memorable scene with friendship/romance” – I just finished Aristotle and Dante on Saturday, but this book has so many memorable scenes involving Ari and Dante and their friendship. One of my favorite scenes is when they went out in the desert to look at the stars and ended up dancing in the rain.

12000020

Cheese: The Bond of Calcium – “Two characters from different books you wish could be friends” – This is kind of a tough one! Umm…I think I’ll go with Lily from Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares and Cath from Fangirl. I think they would really get along and make good friends.

774132516068905

Sour Cream: The Tangy Topper – “The quirkiest character you’ve ever read (protagonist or supporting)” – Leo Valdez from the Heroes of Olympus series, hands down! He was such a great character and definitely fun and quirky to me.

7624272

Guacamole: The Cost of Creaminess – “A book you paid too much for” – I’ll have to say Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom for this one. I bought this book when it was first released and it was $25. It was definitely worth the money though. It was a really great read.

1255781

Lettuce: The Handful of Crispness – “A refreshing concept/theme in a book” – I would have to go with Red Queen for this one. It was definitely different than a lot of books I read and I loved it so much.

22328546

Chips: Le Pièce de Résistance – “A must-read recommendation [if you like this book/genre—you decide!]” – This was one of my favorite books that I read last year and I definitely recommend it. It was a really good read; We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. Love this book! It’s a short read, but so good!

IMG_1369

Tabasco: The Kick to the Face – “Your favorite fight/action sequence” – I definitely have to go with The Last Olympian with this one. It was definitely one of my favorites and it had so much action in it. It was great.

4502507


I am going to tag:

If I didn’t tag you and you want to do it, then you totally should! I would love to see everyone’s answers! This was such a fun tag to do. 🙂 In case you missed it, I did a post about Aristotle and Dante earlier today and you can find that post OVER HERE. It was such an amazing book! Bye! ❤

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.

Hi 🙂

I was nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award by Emily @ The Diary of a Bibliophile, Hadjar @ Manyreads, and Nicole @ awayinneverland! You should totally check out their blogs! All their posts are fantastic and I love their blogs!

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award11

There are five rules that every nominee must follow:

♦ Thank the blogger that nominated you and link their website.
♦ Insert the award logo in your blog post.
♦ Answer the ten questions that were provided by the nominator.
♦ Nominate ten bloggers.
♦ Create ten new questions for your nominees.


Questions from Emily:

1. What is your opinion of e-reading?

+ I love e-reading! I was actually obsessed with it. It’s nice being able to have all my books with me and sometimes I feel like I read faster when I am reading an e-book.

2. Have you ever read a book and loved the story, but hated the protagonist? If so, name the book.

+ This is such a tough question! I guess the answer would be no?…but I liked the first three books in the Mortal Instruments series, but I HATED Clary so much. I also started to hate the series during book four to the point that I just couldn’t stand it anymore.

3. Name a book that made you want to read more.

+ The Hunger Games series. I used to not read anything that wasn’t non-fiction, but I decided to give The Hunger Games a chance and I haven’t looked back. I have been reading anything and everything since.

4. Do you have a preferred place to read (i.e. outside, library, Starbucks, your bed, etc,.)? If so, where?

+ I don’t really have a preferred place to read. I can read anywhere and everywhere. I mostly just lay in bed and read though.

5. Name a classic book that you have yet to read.

+ Pride and Prejudice! I plan to read that this year though and also To Kill a Mockingbird. I also plan to read that this year.

6. Is there a book that you read that changed your perspective on something?

+ Definitely Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom. It was probably the best $25 I ever spent. I love that book so much and it definitely makes you think about life and other people.

7. Other than reading, what do you like to do in your spare time?

+ I love TV shows, so I usually catch up on all my favorite TV shows when I’m not reading. I also love taking pictures and find that really fun.

8. Are there any books that you want that cost more than $100? If so, what is it?

+ I don’t believe I have ever come across a book that was more than $100.


Questions from Hadjar and also from Nicole:

1. Did you have a book that meant a lot to you as a child?

+ I don’t remember too many books that I read as a child. I have a horrible memory, especially when it comes to things that happened when I was a kid. I did love Matilda though!

2. Is there any author or book that you collect and will always welcome multiple editions of the same title?

+ I buy every single Mitch Albom book no matter what! I love his books and his writing style, so I always buy his books. Physical and e-books!

3. Say that you find yourself judging a book by its cover (not that we ever do that!); what sort of covers do you go for? Are there any that are an absolute turn off?

+ I like colorful book covers and whimsical type covers. I like covers that really just stand out and are pretty; cute fonts, etc. As for turn off ones, I guess cheap looking ones or ones that have actual people on them; if that makes any sense.

4. If you could pick any imaginary animal to bring home to Mom with an earnest, “Can we keep him??”, what animal would it be?

+ Pegasus!! I would do chores for a whole month! 😛

5. Is there any book to movie adaptation that you simply refuse to watch? No way, no how, you’re not even giving them the opportunity to mess it up?

+ Nope! If I read the book, I will definitely be watching the movie. I always like to see how it turns out and even though it makes me angry (PERCY JACKSON), I will still watch.

6. What is the most unusual book you’ve ever read? (Plot, writing style, chapter layout, etc?)

+ I’m drawing a blank when it comes to this question!

7. Is there any book or series that you’ve read that is so totally outside of your normal genre, but you loved it and would recommend it to others as a “take a risk!” type of book?

+ I read and always recommend would have to be Eightysixed: Life Lessons Learned. I probably would have never read this or even come across it had the author not comment on one of my pictures on Instagram. I actually loved the book so much and glad she did! You will be laughing out loud throughout the entire book.

8. Do you have any bookish collections, or anything you covet and hope to someday collect? Candles, artwork, bookcases?

+ Besides books, not really. I do like buying bookmarks, so I guess I am slowly building up a bookmark collection. I actually bought some new bookmarks, so once I receive them I will definitely be sharing on my blog. 🙂

9. What book has been on your TBR pile the longest, but you just can’t convince yourself to pick it up?

+ The Infernal Devices series has been on my TBR the longest along with The Darkest Minds and Paper Towns. As far as The Infernal Devices go, I ended up not liking the Mortal Instruments series (like I mentioned in another question) and jumping into the Shadowhunter world again is something I don’t think I am ready to do and haven’t been. Maybe one day! As for The Darkest Minds and Paper Towns, I’m not sure why I haven’t read them yet! I have both books on my bookshelf. I really want to read them ASAP!

10. You get a $500 gift card for all things bookish – do you run to your nearest bookstore and spend like a fiend? Or do you create pro/con lists (a la Rory Gilmore) to make sure you get just the right & perfect & wonderful bookish things? Or are you eyeing a particularly expensive bookcase somewhere?

+ I would probably buy a ton of books right away! I may make a list of the top ones I want to get first and then just add whatever after. So…is there a $500 gift card waiting for me somewhere??! 😛

Celebrity Book Tag.

Hey 🙂

I was tagged by Analee at Book Snacks to do the Celebrity Book Tag. You should definitely check out her blog, because it’s really great! This looks like such a fun tag, so let’s get started!

1. Emma Watson — A book with a hot kick-ass female character

+ Aya from The Glass Arrow. She was a total badass and I loved her so much!

2. Ryan Gosling — A book with the hottest male character

+ I was totally in love with Levi from Fangirl.

3. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt — A book with your favorite fictional book couple

+ Can we change Angelina’s name to Angelo? My favorite fictional couple (newly favorite) is Simon and Blue from Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

4. Shailene Woodley — Author you’ve recently discovered and loved

+ I recently discovered Rainbow Rowell. I’ve heard a lot about her and her books, but never read any of them until this year. I am really excited to read Attachments and Landline – these are the ones I haven’t read yet. I am also totally excited about Carry On to be released this year!

5. Josh Hutcherson- Favorite short story or novella

+ The Day Boy and the Night Girl by George MacDonald. It’s perfect.

6. Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock — Favorite Big Book (over 500 pages)

+ I haven’t read too many big books (like 600+ pages)…I plan to tackle Outlander at some point this year though! A favorite book over 500 pages though would have to be Insurgent. It was my favorite book from the Divergent series and it’s definitely one of my favorite books overall.

7. Leonardio DiCaprio — A series with the most upsetting death (NO SPOILERS)

+ Allegiant, for sure! I still can’t get over it and it’s been so long since I read it. I would also like to pick Messenger by Lois Lowry (it’s the third book in The Giver Quartet). My sister and I still can’t get over it. I don’t think I’ve cried harder than when I read these two books.

8. Kristen Stewart — A book you found boring

+ The Curse Keepers by  Denise Grover Swank – I couldn’t even finish the book. It was just so horrible.

9. Ian Somerhalder — Cutest book on your shelf

+ I haven’t read this book yet, but the cover for Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend is SO CUTE! I can’t wait to read it!

IMG_6372

10. Jennifer Lawrence — Perfect book or series

+ The Maze Runner. It’s definitely one of my favorites. I really really really want to say Penryn and the End of Days series, but the third book isn’t out yet….so I can’t say that it’s perfect, not yet anyway! 😛 I am impatiently waiting for End of Days…you have no idea! I’m pretty sure whatever book I am reading at the time will be put on hold once this book is released!


I am going to tag:

Feel free to skip if you don’t want to do it or if you have already done it. If I didn’t tag you and you want to do it, you totally should! Link me to your post and I’ll check it out if you do! 🙂

Here are some of my other recent posts in case you missed them and want to check them out!

I hope everyone has a great Thursday! ❤

The Ultimate Book Tag.

Untitled

Hey 🙂
I noticed that a lot of you that I follow have been doing this tag and Marie at drizzle and hurricane books tagged me to do it. Go check out her blog, I love it!

Do you get sick while reading in the car?
+ I do not get sick reading in the car and I am so thankful for that. I love reading in the car!

Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
+ I love Mitch Albom’s style of writing, especially when he wrote The Time Keeper.

Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
+ I haven’t actually read Twilight and I never will. I have only read the first two Harry Potter books so far, but if I had to choose, then I would choose Harry Potter.

Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books)?
+ I do not carry a book bag. I do carry a purse, if that counts. It just has the essentials that probably most girls’ purses contain, lol.

Do you smell your books?
+ I do sometimes, but not usually. If I am totally excited about getting a book, then I usually do in my excitement. lol.

Books with or without little illustrations.
+ I haven’t really read many books with illustrations, so I would choose books without.

What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
+ I can’t think of any for this. I love all the books I read regardless if it is was bad quality or not. If I love it, then I love it.

Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
+ None that I can really think of. I have such a horrible memory, especially of my childhood though. So I really have no clue, lol.

What is the tinniest book on your shelf?
+ The tinniest would probably be Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.

What is the thickest book on your shelf?
+ The thickest would probably be Ash by James Herbert. This is by number of pages; if I went by actual thickness, then Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty wins.

IMG_5142

Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
+ I do not write. I am probably a horrible writer. I did buy this book called 642 Things to Write About that I was planning to use on my blog to inspire me to be more creative and to attempt writing. You can see how well that worked out….aka it didn’t. I still want to try the book out though! I’ve had it for a few years and haven’t done any writing prompts from it, oops.

When did you get into reading?
+ I’ve had this on/off relationship with reading throughout my entire life. It was probably 3-4 years ago that I really got back into reading and never looked back since.

What is your favorite classic book?
+ I haven’t read too many classic books, but one of my favorite ones is Of Mice and Men. I really want to read more though. I am going to challenge myself to try to read more classics.

In school what was your best subject Language Arts/English?
+ I wasn’t a fan of these classes when I was in school; I actually wasn’t a fan of school at all when I was in school. My best subject was probably science or any computer class.

If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated, what would you do?
+ I would probably act like I totally love it and then re-gift it to someone else. “OMG THIS IS THE BEST EVER” and then wrap it up and put it in my closet for Christmas time. My luck I would probably end up re-gifting it to the person that gave it to me. 😉

What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while blogging?
+ I constantly edit posts over and over again. I’ll re-read it a million times and fix it a million more. I also tend to get distracted by looking at other websites as I am typing up a post. Pinterest is evil I tell you!

What is your favorite word?
+ I actually really dislike talking, lol. Umm….I guess “forever”. I say it a lot when I’m talking. Like “forever reading” “forever tired” “forever hungry”….FOREVER EVERYTHING! 😉

Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
+ Probably a nerd. My boyfriend always calls me a book nerd. He’s a Call of Duty nerd, so BOOOOM!! He gets to be a nerd too.

Vampires or Fairies? Why?
+ Fairies. They can be totally cute, but then also totally crazy and scary.

Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?
+ This one is kind of tough. I guess I would choose Angels. The badass kind though, like in the book Angelfall or the TV show Supernatural. Castiel ❤ Love my boy.

Spirits or Werewolves? Why?
+ Hmm….maybe werewolves more than spirits. Werewolves seem a lot cooler than a spirit.

Zombies or Vampires? Why?
+ Zombies, for sure. I do like the occasional vampire, but I love reading about zombies. Here’s a fun fact: I hate zombie TV shows (besides that new show iZombie and yes that means I hate The Walking Dead) and I hate zombie movies, but I am a sucker for a good zombie book. I have no clue why I rather read about them than watch them.

Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?
+ I hate love triangles so much! I would rather read about forbidden love.

And finally: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
+ Action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in. I hate when a book has so much romance in it. I tend to really hate those and end up not finishing the book if it’s too bad. I guess I just prefer action-packed books more than anything else.

This was fun, wasn’t it? I tag anyone that hasn’t done it already, because most of the people that I follow have already done this tag. So if you haven’t done it, GO DO IT! Also, link me to your post in the comments if you choose to do it, so I can see your answers! 🙂

It’s Saturday, which means I probably will clean the apartment and read. Try to clean anyway; I always end up just reading or watching tv. I’m horrible, lol. Here is a lovely picture from last night to show you how awesome my Friday nights are….and I am not being sarcastic. This is the perfect Friday night for me. I am totally anti-social and I get anxiety when people try to make small talk with me. I am that person that will pretend to be focused on my phone and pretend not to hear you.

IMG_5135

Perfection in all its glory, just saying. 😉

You can check out some other posts I’ve done recently over here:

That’s all for me today. Let’s see if I can be productive today. Get through a little over half of Throne of Glass or clean my apartment. Both would be ideal. BYE ❤

Liebster Award.

IMG_2393

I was nominated to do the Liebster Award by Josie at Josies Book Corner. I’ve been nominated before, but I decided I would do it again. I love Josie’s blog and it’s been so awesome becoming friends with her. I definitely recommend everyone to check out her blog and follow her!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  2. Display the award on your blog – by including it in your post/ or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post).
  3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person you nominated you.
  4. Nominate 5-11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!).
  5. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
  6. List these rules in your post. (You can copy and paste).
  7. Find some way to inform those who have nominated you.

Questions from Josie:

1. FAVORITE BOOK YOU’VE READ THIS YEAR?
I’ve read so many great books so far this year, but my favorite that I read this year would have to be Take Me With You by Catherine Ryan Hyde. It’s such a great read!

2. PICK A CHARACTER YOU LIKE AND A SONG THEY’D SERENADE TO THEIR OTHER HALF.
I’m drawing a complete blank with this one! Sorry 😦 I’m definitely going to think about this though and maybe I’ll edit the post later with it or answer at a later time in another post.

3. A QUOTE THAT INSPIRES YOU.
“What’s the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” – John Green, An Abundance of Katherines.

4. A CHARACTER YOU WOULD DATE IF THEY WERE REAL.
This was kind of hard to answer, surprisingly. I think I would choose Tobias from Divergent or Minho from The Maze Runner. I love them both so much!

5. A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU OR A BOOK THAT YOU DIDN’T EXPECT TO LIKE.
Angelfall by Susan Ee definitely surprised me and I also loved it so much and didn’t expect that I would like it so much! The second book was just as great (World After) and I am impatiently waiting for the next book! The series has been so awesome so far.

6. NAME AN AUTHOR YOU’D LOVE TO MEET AND PICK THEIR BRAINS.
I am so shy and probably wouldn’t have the guts to ever meet an author, but if I could, I would want to meet Veronica Roth or Rick Riordan. I love them both and their books! Mitch Albom would also be great to meet.

7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF BOOK TO READ ON A COLD WINTER DAY?
Probably some type of thriller/paranormal type book. I think it fits the mood of a cold and winter day, perfectly. I live in Florida though, so cold and wintery type days is pretty much non-existent. So I’m not entirely sure what book I would gravitate to if I was in the situation.

8. DO YOU HAVE A BOOK THAT YOU READ EVERY YEAR OR HAVE RE-READ MORE THAN ONCE?
I actually don’t have a book that I read every year, but a book that I have reread more than once was The Diary of a Young Girl. I love Anne Frank and her book. I’ve read that for school and then I read it again on my own. I believe I’ve read it three times.

9. FAVORITE ENDING TO A BOOK?
My favorite ending to a book was The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. It was the perfect ending and it is one of my favorite books.

10. A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth; I cried forever it seemed like. I had to stop reading for a while, because I couldn’t see the letters clearly from crying so much. I cried long after I read it and every time I thought about the book. Also, Messenger (third book in the Giver Quartet) by Lois Lowry. That book tore me apart and for days I was talking about it and crying when I thought about it. You can check out my post on the series over here and I posted a picture of myself after I read the book (well after I kind of calmed down from crying, lol). After reading Messenger, I got into a huge reading slump that lasted me the entire rest of the year and I refused to read the last book until four months after I read Messenger.

11. A BOOK YOU BELIEVE EVERY BOOK-LOVER SHOULD READ, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR PREFERENCES.
This is kind of hard to answer, but I always recommend Eightysixed: Life Lessons Learned by Emily Belden. It’s actually a book that I didn’t think I would even like that much, but ended up loving so much. I’ve mentioned it before how I probably never would have found the book had the author not comment on one of my Instagram pictures about it.

I really loved answering these questions. They were such great questions! This is kind of breaking the rules, but I’m going to skip nominating anyone. I would love for everyone to do it and answer the above questions that I answered. If you do decide to do it, link me to your post or you can tell me your questions in the comments section if you like. 🙂

I need to get myself out of this mini-reading slump I am in, so I am off to read The Glass Arrow. So far it’s okay, but I haven’t been in the reading mood and have only read 45 pages over an eight day period of trying to read it. It’s kind of sad, because I bought so many books over the last month that I really want to get around to reading. I’m hoping by getting further into The Glass Arrow it will pull me out of the reading slump.
